The view from Lynne's front yard the morning after a rainstorm, it was my favorite sky, blue, grey and white with spots of flying sun.
The vagabond artists posing ever-so-decorously in front of the Chocksett Inn in Sterling MA. Ginna is the only participant who wasn't fully captured. Note the aprons on those who think ahead. Note me at upper left, one of those who doesn't think ahead.
Ginna showing her work. On the left is Lesley and on the right is Anne.
I finished this one at home with the threads. I didn't plan to do that, but the longer these things stare at me the more they tell me about what they need. So threads it was! I'm a bit leery about using religious imagery and usually don't, but the icon theme made that tendency more overt. The animals become totem-like and in this case, somewhat predatory. The threads always seem protective to me, so perhaps they protect the Virgin. The title is a verse:
Oh stitch the reason
On my heart
When I am blind
To snake and hawk.
